Behold! The best and funniest Auburn-related video of 2011.
At first we thought it was all on the up-and-up. An alumnus abroad teaching his Korean class “Warrrrr Eagle, Hey!” and showing excitement for Auburn football is on Internet par with cats wearing hats or “ouch, my balls!” We’ve all seen that before. It even has b-roll of the Auburn alum walking and talking to the reporter outside the school.
But then during the first interview with Chris Lowe, a 1998 Auburn grad, the white board gives it away: “Please adopt me Coach Chizik.”
So yes… Lowe teaches Auburn 101 to Bo, Cam, Newton, Cadillac (“Cadillac, How’s it rollin’?” — “Like a first round draft pick.”) , Jackson, Campbell, Aubie and Shug at the Center for Auburn Studies in South Korea. So far, the class has learned Auburn is undefeated, has 117 national championships and will beat Oregon in the national championship by the scores 72-17 (“It’s going to be close.”), 117-3 or 0-0, because, as “Campbell” told the class, Oregon sees Auburn before the game. . . and forfeits.
“I tried to teach the students not to predict Auburn winning by more than 100,” Lowe said. “It’s just not Christian-like.”
Watch until the end. The last 15 seconds might be the best part. Bravo, Chris Lowe and Lauren Bercarich, bravo.
